Inspiration

Well, my revisions are off to my editor! I am using this little break to recharge my creative batteries, and what timing. As you may know, my new book is about the Olympics, and this year has not been short on inspiration:


Simply spectacular. 

I am a big big fan of the photo reference, probably due in part to RISD's fantastic image library. Now I do most of my photo reference searches online. I use them both for, say, figuring out how to draw an elephant- but sometimes, also for plain old inspiration. Besides the Olympics, these photos have been lighting my fire recently:





Neil Diamond- my first crush.

Enjoy the Olympics, everyone- and GO FOR THE GOLD!
